    Bill and I were in the Army National Guard together.
    We also went through ARMY basic training at the same time in Ft.Bragg, North Carolina
    Then we went to advanced individual training in Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland.
    We were best buddies for years and had many good times together.
    I still have a scar on my forehead from being attacked and bitten by his Doberman.
    I think about Bill every time I look into the mirror or shave my face.
    I’ve grown to like the souvenir on my head
    and will wear it proudly for the rest of my life.
    Bill always called me “Shakey”

    God Bless His Precious Soul.
    See You Soon My Dear Friend,
    “Shakey”

    Billy was one of those folks who always made everyone feel better about themselves and life in general. I don’t think I’ve ever heard his name without breaking out in a big smile. I know I’ve never heard a negative word about him. Very rare.

    Deb I love you and I am so sorry he’s gone. You and Billie had one of those marriages others envy and I know he loved you more than anything on this earth. My heart hurts for all who loved this big ol’ larger than life guy and most of all you. You gave him joy, love, laughter and a best friend….an vice versa!

    I’m trying to rearrange flights to and from Savannah so I can be there Sunday. If it doesn’t work out I really need to see, hug, you soon.

    My sympathies to the rest of the family. If my heart hurts this bad I can’t begin to imagine how hard this is on all of you.
